Chapter 5 is finished!
Chapter 5 is complete! Well, minus the various things I need to go back and clean up a little now that I've got some time. So there will be some of that. This one clocked in at 28 pages over the course of about 5 months. That might be a record!
I feel like this one went the smoothest of them all so far, and hopefully that trend will continue. I started doing quick layouts with the Intuos and leaving copious notes for myself in the margins. I think the last 10 or so pages really benefited from this.
We're going to break for a month or so and plot out the next issue. I've been thinking about this one for awhile so I think all the major beats are there, I just need to write out the dialog and design the locations.
Lots of new minor characters to design... and crowd scenes. Yuck.
Indy Pop Con 2015
For various reasons we haven't done many conventions over the last year, but Indy Pop Con was a lot of fun and is 20 mins away so we're plannning on being there again this year. We'll have Issue 5 and (hopefully) the Volume 1 trade. As always the whole R Squared Crew should be in attendance.

This got put on hold for other more pressing things, though it frankly wouldn't make much sense to of printed it last fall. Having it for a convention means people might actually buy it! Working really hard to make it not $20, but that'll probably be the final price.
In addition to all of this, I'm really wanting to do some "hero" posters for all the major characters. Something kinda like this:
